I just saw a Saddleback bag listed on E-bay which made some very disparaging remarks about the quality of Saddleback bags today as compared with bags of a few years ago.  Since I have been thinkging…Continue

Oh, also handed out a bunch of SBL business cards, too!

Got some compliments on my tobacco large classic briefcase today (new job...so they'd never seen it).  One guy knew exactly what it was, and later showed me his Saddleback wallet.  I then had to show him MY SBL wallet, and card case, and gadget sleeve.  ;-)

Just listed an extra large SBL vintage bag on eBag. This may be the last in that series of auctions. It is for one day. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Extra-Large-Saddleback-Leather-Briefcase-Ba...

for some reason there is not an option to leave a photo in the discussion forum so l will put them here for Matt .

Comment by Herb Munson on September 8, 2012 at 3:35pm

Way back in 2005, when Saddleback was just getting started, I began to help Dave sell bags on eBay. And, starting now, Dave has given me my old job back to sell the rest of his vintage items (left over from those days that have been sitting in our warehouse) on eBay. These bags are special because a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) to help them develop an artificial pancreas to help my thirteen year old granddaughter Grace and others that suffer from Type 1 diabetes. First come, first serve, while they last! 

Comment by Bobby on June 14, 2012 at 4:35pm

I have become a saddleback addict. Since i bought my first saddleback product (Large breifcase), i have become obsessed with saddleback leather. I visit their website at least once a day. This is a really weird feeling, becuase i have never before experienced being so fascinated by material products the same way i am with saddleback. Anyone else have the same feeling? It would be great to know if i am not the only one who is experiencing this kind of fascination.
